“Great hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The following review is my personal opinion only and based only on my own experience.

I stayed here for a few nights and was really impressed. It's a beautiful hotel, the room I stayed in and the communal areas were lovely. I can't emphasize enough how friendly and helpful all the staff were. My room was always very clean. The location was great, easily within walking distance of the main square. If I return to Marrakech I will definitely stay there again, and I would recommend anyone going to stay there too. Thanks to all the staff for a great stay!

We stayed at the Naoura Barriere last week for a couple of days before joining friends at a riad in Marrakech. The stay was perfect, the rooms spacious and very comfortable the level of service very good and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Well worth the money and deserving of the recommendations here.

This hotel is beautiful, well located, has excellent rooms, a great pool, and the staff caters to your every need.

My wife and I came on our honeymoon and from the moment our taxi pulled in to the moment the hotel dropped us off at the train station, we felt so pampered. We were welcomed with milk and dates (traditional for newly married couples), everyone at the hotel was friendly and greeted us throughout, and the concierge staff took care of anything we needed. Need a walking tour? Done. A horse carriage tour? Done. Need a phone card? Done. Need train tickets? Done. Need a ride to the train station? Done. Best of all - everything charged to the room.

The pool is fantastic. The water was warm the entire time. Might have been a quiet period because there were only a few people at the pool at any given time, so it worked perfectly for us. Spent so much time just chilling in and by the pool. Always got an umbrella and chairs, never a problem. Missing it so much as I type this review!!

The junior suite was exquisite. Spacious, clean and well designed. They gave us one of the best rooms in the hotel, with a beautiful view of the pool. The weather was just perfect (80 F / 25 C in the day, 70 F / 20 C in the evening), so we spent a lot of time on the balcony. Room service would set our meals on the balcony each time. Minibar was included (soda, water, etc), which was nice. Bed was very comfortable.

Breakfast was another highlight. Excellent quality and selection, right by the pool (a more limited choice is available in your room, which we did once). And it's included in the price.

Khadija, the head concierge was so resourceful and helpful, as were Linda and Amal. Everyone else in the staff was great too.

Four stars instead of five for the following minor reasons:

- No iron/ironing board was provided, even upon request. We had to get our clothes ironed from downstairs, which took time and was naturally not free. Would have been so much easier to just iron at our own convenience.
- Room service food is ok. Would expect it to be a bit better given such a high quality of the hotel.
- Very limited and outdated choice of movies. There was just one night where we felt like catching a movie with dinner, so not really a big deal.
- Way too many light switches in the room. Never figured out what controls what, it was always trial and error. A little annoying when you're about to go to sleep.
- Pool closes at 7. Given the warm weather into the night, it would have been great to have it open till 9.

No question that we will be back to visit beautiful Marrakech in a couple of years and will stay at the Naoura for sure. Thank you everyone at the Naoura for making our honeymoon so special!!

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool. Try to get one on a higher floor for more privacy and for a large balcony.

We have just returned from a 3 night break at this very lovely hotel. I just wanted to give a brief review, the rooms were wonderfully appointed and looked just as they do on the pictures. There is a sound system where you can pipe music through Bose speakers and films you can watch. The TV remote is a little complicated and most channels are in French or Arabic, only BBC news for the Brits.
We had a little problem on the first day when the TV froze and staff couldnt fix it, along with the extractor fan in the toilet, falling down from the ceiling and smashing over the floor, plus the communal door to the hallway which all the rooms lead off, was right by our room, so it was disturbing us, every time some accessed their own rooms, banging shut etc. We called the front desk and spoke to one of the duty managers, who immediately came to see what had happened. She told us she would instantly move us to a better room which we would love. Within 15 mins we were moved from the ground floor to a first floor room with a huge 20ft private terrace. It was gorgeous and a lovely surprise.

All the staff, particularly the pool staff were wonderful, they were very attentive and instantly arrived with several towels for the sumptious sunbeds and even played with the few children that were there, the head pool man actually got into a wet suit and gave a child a free swimming lesson.

The breakfast was wonderfu in the outside restaurant, the weather was approx 28-30 degrees, pool was the right temperature to swim in.

The location to the old square was perfect, it was literally a 8-10 min walk to the crazy souks and outdoor markets, the hotel was a haven in a high walled and very secure development.

Farouks - the hotel restaurant was lovely but extremely expensive, we sat outside and ate dinner by the pool one night.

A small water bottle was provided each day at no charge, however the cost of soft drinks and food was extremely high, and the alcohol was exorbitant everywhere in Marrakesch.

We also visitied Maison de Arabe for dinner one night which was set in a beautiful Ryad around the corner, the food was disappointing there.

Le Comptoir is an international and Morrocan restaurant with bellydancers, that we also visited, it was extremely fun and we had a lovely dinner there with coctails but it was London prices, the meal cost £150.00 for 2 people , but a lovely experience to have.

Overall, this hotel was absolutely perfect and if we ever came back to Marrakesch without our children again, we would definately stay there again.

I would not recommend for children as there is only one pool and not much else for kids, my 3 boys would have been bored, but for a weekend couples retreat... DONT HESITATE AND BOOK !

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor away from the communal hallway door

Everything was absolutely gorgeous.
The place is spotlessly clean. The room is huge, with separate bathroom and toilet room. The TV has an extensive list of programs, including a film channel where one could choose among many films. The staff is polite and willing to help all the time.
Great breakfast and great food overall.
Would go back in a second.
For me, is the best hotel I have ever stayed so far.
